|Hiroki Kuroda nearly goes the distance|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/17/13) Yankees starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda turned in a stellar performance as he picked up his sixth win of the season Friday night against the Blue Jays.
Kuroda (6-2), who made his ninth start of the season, fired eight scoreless innings and surrendered just two hits. He struck out five and walked one in a 5-0 victory.
Kuroda has five starts with eight-plus scoreless innings since the start of the 2012 season. The only pitcher with more over that span is Felix Hernandez (eight). Kuroda is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday at Baltimore. He pitched a complete-game shutout in his previous meeting against the Orioles on April 14.

(5/12/13) Yankees starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda allowed only a sacrifice fly to Alex Gordon and an RBI groundout to Alcides Escobar in 7 2/3 innings, leading New York to a 4-2 win against the Royals Sunday. Kuroda (5-2) allowed the two runs on six hits and a walk, while striking out one.
The right-hander had a 15-batter stretch without allowing a hit and win for the fifth time in his last seven starts.
Kuroda is expected to start Friday against the Blue Jays. Kuroda is 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA in two starts against Toronto this season.

(5/8/13) Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda didn't pitch well enough to beat Jorge De La Rosa and the Rockies in Colorado Tuesday night. Still, he was pretty good over seven innings in defeat.
Kuroda threw 101 pitches and gave up just two runs on seven hits and a walk with three strikeouts. However, he surrendered a two-run homer in the sixth to Carlos Gonzalez and De La Rosa and the Colorado bullpen combined for a 2-0 shutout.
Kuroda has been sharp for the Yankees with his 4-2 record and 2.30 ERA. He's allowed no more than three runs in any start and has done that only twice over seven outings. He consistently gets deep in games and has a beautiful 1.07 WHIP with 33 Ks over 43 innings.
Kuroda is scheduled to make his next start Sunday at Kansas City.
|Hiroki Kuroda could stumble at Coors Field|

(5/4/13) Given his strong start to the season, Fantasy owners probably do not need much of a reason to trust Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda. The veteran is 4-1 with a 2.25 ERA through the first five weeks of the season, but he might have a bit of trouble in Week 6 (May 6-12). Kuroda is set to take the mound on the road twice in the week, and one of those trips could prove to be a problem for him.
In Week 5, Al Melchior had Kuroda ranked 39th among all pitchers in his Pitching Forecaster, despite him taking the mound just once. Now, Kuroda is scheduled for two starts in Week 6 (May 6-12), and Al has him a spot lower, at No. 40. That is because Kuroda has to travel to Colorado to face the Rockies in one of the worst environments for a pitcher.
Kuroda should be able to post solid ERA and WHIP numbers for the week overall, with a matchup against the Royals looming afterwards, but that game in Colorado could knock him off course a bit. Kuroda is still a solid Fantasy option in all formats, but this is something to consider as you set your lineup.
|Hiroki Kuroda goes seven shutout for win|

(4/30/13) Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda pitched seven shutout innings Tuesday night at home against the Astros.
Kuroda (4-1) needed 108 pitches and struck out a season-high eight as he allowed four hits to get th win in the 7-4 victory. He walked four, but 71 of his 108 pitches were strikes. His ERA is 2.25.
Kuroda not allowed more than three runs in any of his six starts this season. The 38-year-old has 30 strikeouts over 36 innings. H is next start is Sunday against Oakland.
|For all the braying about Hiroki Kuroda not being able to handle the AL East's big bats before last season began, there was very little in the way of "we were wrong" mea culpas being issued. Kuroda, after a shaky start that saw him sporting a 4.56 ERA just before Memorial Day, righted his ship and had a quietly great 2012 season. His 3.32 ERA was the second-lowest of his career and his 1.17 WHIP was the third lowest. His 16 wins and 167 strikeouts were a career high. Kuroda, a righty, didnít have a problem pitching in Yankee Stadium, either, producing a 2.72 ERA in a park that is very friendly to left-handed hitters. Don't go into drafts expecting other owners to jump on the 38-year-old early, but know that he could be a tremendous under-the-radar bargain in the later rounds, with five seasons of sub-3.80 ERA and 1.22 WHIP under his belt.
